Laserable CO 2 Laserable: Generally applies to acrylic core materials as well as rubber, which can be CO 2 laser engraved and cut. Also suitable for coated or anodized metals. ABS materials can also be CO 2 lasered, although cutting results and lasering quality may vary according to materials and/or colours. Apart from a few exceptions, most CO 2 laserable materials are also rotary engravable. Fibre Laserable: Generally applies to metals, either bare or coated. A wide variety of plastics can also be fibre lasered.


Rotary Engravable (with a rotary cutting tool) The most versatile engraving technology. Suitable for most plastic materials and metals.

UV Print UV LED printing material.

Indoor Use Material designed for indoor use which does not require resistance to UV light or changes in the climate.

Outdoor Use Within the limit of technical specifications provided and compliance to standard conditions of use, materials are designed to be resistant to climate and UV variation without significant alteration to its features. Due to wide variety of use conditions, PDU cannot assert material shelf-life.

Surface Engraving 1-Ply, 2-Ply or 3-Ply materials are either lasered or engraved to expose the core of the material, thereby giving a colour contrast between cap (surface layer) and core (base colour).

Subsurface Engraving (also known as reverse engraving) Applies to 1-Ply and 2-Ply clear base materials. The material is lasered or engraved from the back. Once lasered or engraved, the characters and logos can be back-painted to achieve aesthetic colour contrast.

Sublimatable Applies to materials with a polyester coating designed to recieve inks via heat transfer.
